Animal groomer accused of bludgeoning pets
South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Submitted by: sTabby
"Brian Butler says he brought his 16-year-old poodle Spike to the shop last month for a haircut, and the next day his dog was dead from broken ribs and internal bruising. 'This is inexcusable, unforgivable,' said Butler, a Wilton Manors resident who said he has filed a police report. 'I brought my dog there for a nice bubble bath and haircut... Spike didn't deserve to die like that.' ... Butler said he was so distraught after Spike's death that he crawled into his dog's cage so he wouldn't forget the way his pet smelled."

defenselink.mil | Submitted by: Sans_A_Cause
The Pentagon has disavowed a recent story in The Weekly Standard purporting to document links between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda: "News reports that the Defense Department recently confirmed new information with respect to contacts between al-Qaida and Iraq in a letter to the Senate Intelligence Committee are inaccurate... The classified annex was not an analysis of the substantive issue of the relationship between Iraq and al Qaida, and it drew no conclusions."

Doctors at a government hospital in the northern city of Ipoh said they found the section of a wooden chopstick lodged in tissue between his eyes during exploratory surgery to remove an unknown foreign object... the man, Ng Keng Choon, was lucky to be alive because the chopstick had been nudging against his brain... 'If the stick had gone another half-centimeter (0.2 inch) deeper, he could be dead.'"

pub.tv2.no | Submitted by: Tommy G
"The 14-year-old Danish girl, who allegedly attacked and killed her brother while he was sleeping in his bed, was most likely inspired by horror movies...

The sight that allegedly met the sleep-drunken father was his 14-year-old daughter sitting on top of her brother stabbing him with a bread knife. She was wearing a coveralls and a Halloween mask. The father tried to stop the attack, but the girl turned on him and he received several stabs to his head and arms. Before the man could react, the girl took off in the family’s car, a red Hyundai Pony. Danish police believes horror movies like Halloween may have inspired the girl.

Utah mayor selected via dice roll
ksat.com | Submitted by: Cygnus 3
"Mark Allen won his third term as mayor of Washington Terrace, thanks to a roll of the dice. He and challenger Robert Garside tied in a Nov. 4 election with 724 votes each. According to Utah law, tie votes must be decided by drawing lots. Usually that means anything from flipping a coin to drawing a name out of a hat. But the city recorder said they felt that rolling dice was a more fair way to make a choice."

In fact, he has not appeared in a film since his first and only role in 1972, when he made a memorable cameo performance as the banjo-playing child in Deliverance... Having been persuaded to come out of retirement by the director Tim Burton, Mr Redden, 47, will recreate his banjo-picking role in Big Fish."

South American guillotine flies released in Florida
South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Submitted by: sTabby
"The Department of Agriculture is releasing South American phorid flies, a natural enemy of the fire ant, at the St. Lucie County International Airport. The flies kill South American fire ants that were accidentally imported in the last century... The flies inject their eggs into the ants. When the eggs hatch, maggots crawl into the ant's head and grow, secreting a chemical that causes the ant's head to fall off. The maggot then eats everything in the head and uses it as a cocoon. Eventually, a fly emerges and hunts for another fire ant."

British restaurants selling ass curry
Guardian | Submitted by: Number-6
"When Sharwoods launched its latest product range earlier this month, it promised the 'deliciously rich' sauces based on a traditional northern Indian method of cooking would 'change the way consumers make curry.' ... What it failed to foresee was that bundh in Punjabi has an altogether less savoury meaning - the nearest English translation being, to put it bluntly, 'arse.'"
